Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cherry, raspberry and minerals lifted by flowers and an exotic white fruit note. Less opulent today than the Ark but with terrific energy enlivening the tight flavors of cherry, flowers and spices. A real red hole of a wine, extremely dense but youthfully imploded today. Best on the slowly building, extremely long finish, which features a firm spine of tannins and acids to support 15 to 20 years of evolution in bottle.
